From Transport Evolved.
Over the MLK Weekend, a full-page ad appeared in the New York Times, calling for Tesla’s Full Self Driving Beta to be banned from the roads of the U.S.
It made some pretty spurious allegations against Tesla and its FSD technology – and has certainly raised quite a few eyebrows in the automotive world.
Coming from a seemingly grass-roots organization called "The Dawn Project," we had a lot of questions about the ad.
And we figured you might do too. So, we decided to dig deeper.
